Kuudee, my bossom friend loves to smell good. She uses lots of perfumes, sprays and deodorants. Before I made the transition to homemade deodorants, I used to buy from her.
She became interested in how to make homemade deodorant bars/push up/roll up deodorants after I shared a recipe on how to make pit paste deodorant.
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup ori/okuma/mai kadanya
4 teaspoons beeswax pellets
2 Tablespoons zinc oxide
20 drops fragrance or essential oil
You will need to get 2 empty used up tubes for this
Melt oils in a bowl placed over boiling water
Remove from heat and whisk in zinc oxide
Add the essential oil or fragrance
Pour into molds
Allow it to set for 3 – 4 hours
Coconut oil: moisturizing
Ori/Okuma/Mai Kadanya: hydrating and nourishing
Zinc Oxide: helps you to stay dry and helps with odour
Congrats on making yours.
I love you, I love your health.
Your favourite family physician,
